Wool and Nail Art!

Today we did Wool and Nail Art for our art rotations.  Alisha, Olivia and I created our art step by step using wood, nails , wool and a star stencil.

I enjoyed doing this because it was fun and interesting. I would do it again but I would change the star into something else. 

1. For our first step we hammered nails in a star shape onto our wood

2. For our second step we put the wool on our star. It looked like this.

Fun Week

Walt: Use a variety of interesting vocabulary to keep our readers engaged. 

On the last few days of Term 1 the Yr 8ś went to camp and the Yr 7ś stayed behind and had 3 fun days. On the first day of our fun week we watched a movie called Boys2men. We watched half of the movie on the first day. After the movie we wrote a brainstorm of the movie.

On the second day of our 3 fun days we watched the other half of the movie. When we watched the movie we also ate popcorn, we were given popcorn to make the movie more enjoyable. The movie was extra cool because it was made by one of our teachers Miss Muliaumasealii. Parts of it were filmed in Glen Innes and the other parts were filmed at James Cook High School and a big warehouse.  I enjoyed watching the movie because it taught me some things. 

On the last day of our 3 fun days we made flower blankets, and pasta bake. The cooking group started to make the food while the other children carried on with there flower blankets and other art. We made our flower blankets by using fake flowers, pins and mesh. After we completed our flower blankets we got ready to eat. Each of us were given a coke and a bowl of pasta bake. If you finished you were allowed to have 2nds, 3rds, 4ths or even 5ths. 

Overall I thought our fun week was GREAT. We had a fun time doing our arts and crafts.
